Thanks To Paul for the Location, Decided for an early start 8.o ish… The Black Red Start (Fem) was hopping from S.w.a.l.e.c building to a small bush in Cooper Carriers compound Ddole road Industrial estate… poor thing being harrassed by pied wags and robins …The back drop being a plain wall doesn’t enhance the bird at all… being a bit bleached out…but what the heck!!!! A first for me and not many seen around LLandod ever. Again a big thanks to Eagle eye Leafie.
In order:- buzzard.. Mistle thrush guarding his cache of yew berries..Male and female Stonechat, still just that distance away for a decent pic and a Dunnock joined the chats all taken in the rhogo area….7/8 Teal on The Hundred house back road pool….Kestrel still about near the fossil quarry Upper Gilwern.
“Is it a bird is it a plane…..Its Sky lark” Yes its one of our local bloggers Martin (Skylark) Middleton…..Martin is a keen bird watcher photographer also pilot……Now that’s how to do a bit of aerial Birdwatching….Also very nice for me to have ones own aerial display….A little scarey when the plane comes straight at you !!!!! .
